Mozzarella & Tomato Pizza

Mozzarella & Tomato Pizza

One of my most cherished memories and the only after school activity I had in high school and looked forward to almost every day was stopping at the corner pizzeria for a hot slice of $1.25 NY cheesy pizza served on a white flimsy paper plate that oozed with oil, which would inevitably run down my arm as I ate it on my way home. It was truly heaven in my mouth! Recently, to satiate that sudden craving, I decided to make my own simple tasty version at home. It's one of those quick fool-proof no-fuss recipes that is perfect to make and serve on those casual nights when someone wants to stop by or just when having a few girlfriends over.
